MTN Midnight Plan: 25 Naira for 250MB & N50 for 500MB.

A lot of folks enjoyed MTN 500MB for N25 night plan package for more than 2 years (July 2016 – August 16 2018) but it has been recently slashed and divided into two packages. I have therefore posted this article to reflect recent changes. This MTN midnight plan is also called MTN Pulse free night browsing because it only works on MTN Pulse.

Talking of MTN night plan, it is so unfortunate that airtel suddenly scrapped what was known as the best night plan ever which gives users unlimited access to the internet at a very cheap rate. Notwithstanding, MTN has come to our rescue with MTN 500mb for N25 night plan. At least that was what we thought.

Update: The telecom giant has revisited this plan probably due to loss of subscribers and has made few changes.

MTN Nigeria has again revised its night plan for the second time this year. Though it is still not up to what we used to enjoy but better than the earlier revision.

The MTN Pulse night bundle is still of two packages. The price hasn’t changed but the amount of data allocated to each of the packages has been increased.

  • 1.) Most users have been facing the issue of the 25 naira midnight plan stopping before using up to 500MB. This happens when you subscribe to mtn 500mb for n25 night plan before 12am. My point, make sure you only send Night to 131 from 12:10 am and above.
  • 2.) The night plan can be activated on one mtn line once per night, but if you have more than one MTN sim, you can get as much as 2GB to browse and download at a cheap price of N100 with 4 different sim cards.
  • 3.) Mtn 25 naira night plan is usable only within 12am – 4am.
